Description Lubomir Kundrak 2007-08-20 15:02:02 UTC
Description of problem:

Media script (/usr/share/apps/konversation/scripts/media) that is distributed
with konversation package reportedly does not escape tags from media files
corrctly allowing command injection into IRC channel. See URL for details.

Comment 2 Lubomir Kundrak 2007-11-09 15:45:42 UTC
Dennis: so what about this? Could you please update vulnerable versions? I think
that the best way would be to just remove the script.

Comment 8 Eren Türkay 2008-04-09 13:36:24 UTC
There is no need to remove media script from konversation. I tried CR LF on
id3tag and it just wrote the text underlined.

I'm not sure this deletion is a true solution. Could anyone provide a
proof-of-concept for it?
